i'm also a wedding photographer who specializes in intimate weddings and elopements.

Lucky for you, I am a legit professional at making people look adorable in photos. A little witchy, a little hippie, always hungry. I love what I do, which is mostly giving ALL POSSIBLE f*cks about you + your memories.

i'm cat, a weird
person in love. like you.

welcome!

I just want to make art. I like 75º and sunny with a breeze, my four-legged child Snowflake, and mustard yellow (could you tell?). I'm married, I drive too fast sometimes and my soul is nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains. I firmly believe that a strong connection to our Earth is paramount in experiencing the short life we are given to the fullest. Soy Maruchan is one of my favorite eats, and the first time I heard Tony Bennett on vinyl I cried. I got my first four tattoos within 2 weeks of turning 18, and successfully hid my septum piercing for a few weeks when I was 19. If it's holographic or has a monstera leaf on it, I want it. Most importantly...I love the magic that is photography more than I could ever explain. Let's be friends.

weddings are notorious for being beautiful, elaborate, expensive...and of course, stressful. i'm here to assure you that your wedding (or, ahem, elopement) does not have to check all of those boxes.

It's imperative to me that all couples, everywhere, become more aware of this. It's my mission to ensure that whatever you envision for your wedding day is what you get, and that it comes as close to your dreams as possible. We can hike a few miles (you're gonna have to hear my labored breathing) to the top of a mountain at sunrise, we can plan a shindig at your favorite brewery since some of them do that now, or we can party for hours and hours at the venue of your dreams with your closest friends and family.




No matter what your day looks like, I'll be there for you.

that's what your day is about. period.

your love.

I am here for what YOU and your partner want, and nothing that you don't.

what our friends are saying:

-angelica

I honestly cannot say enough great things about Cat! From the first message I received from her to all the post-wedding ones, she has been absolutely amazing to work with and to know! [...] She was so much fun to have shoot our wedding - everyone thought she was an absolute joy, and made everyone feel at ease and comfortable. Her work is just STUNNING! I couldn't be happier with our wedding photos, and we can't wait to work with her again in the future for more couples photos. <3 Highly, highly recommend her!

-Lauren

I cannot rave enough about Cat. She’s an absolute gem, and her pictures are pure magic. She doesn’t just capture the shot. She captures the feeling + the memory. She will make you feel at home in front of the camera as soon as you meet her. But trust me, the magic will follow even though you’re completely at ease. Cat is amazing. Period. Don’t look any further. Your pictures are about to be pure masterpieces.

-Haley

Cat is amazing to work with. She took photos of my boyfriend and I, and we can be super awkward, but she made us feel really comfortable and we had so much fun! I would literally never suggest another photographer over her. The pictures were amazing, I recommend her to everyone I know!!!

-quandra

We wanted to do anniversary photos for our two year anniversary. I’ve been stalking cat on IG for awhile and loveeeeed her style. so I finally reached out and I am so so glad I did. She was so down to earth and chill the entire time it was just effortless. It was as if we’ve already known each other and it made the shoot so easy and laid back. She is a true artist and I am so honored we were able to be apart of her work! I still can’t get over how AMAZING the photos turned out. We are already talking about our next session and we cannot wait to work with her again.

-Contessa

Book Cat for your wedding. You won’t regret it. My experience has been so amazing. Above and beyond what I ever expected when searching for a photographer. Our professional relationship quickly formed into a real friendship. [...] When she walked into my dressing room on the big day it was just like seeing any of my other friends and she fit right in! [...] I could not imagine my wedding with out her there. Her photos and sense of style are amazing! I couldn’t be happier with the photos we received!

-Sarah

Cat is amazing. 10/10. She’s comfortable, she makes you comfortable. This girl legit scaled a mountain and perched herself to get priceless shots of our special day. We were blessed to have our paths cross and her capture our mountain top wedding. If you want quality, Forest and Fog is a no brainer.
